Provide the LPP Option when providing CVE Security bulletins
When reviewing the Security bulletins published from IBM they mention the PTF (Program Temporary Fix) Id that will fix the problem and the LPP (Licensed Program Product) but they do not mention the LPP option. With most LPP's there is only a single LPP option which is 0000, however the OS (5770SS1) has many options which are not always installed by every user. This means you may down load a fix as suggested only to have the LOD/APY of the PTF fail because the reuqired option is not installed. I did review the data provided by IBM in the support pages for each PTF, even there the Option the PTF is for is not mentioned. If a PTF is aimed at a particular option then the data provided for the PTF should have the option mentioned somewhere.
